Divinely Soft and Nutty Pumpkin Loaf


The heavens opened up today, my heart missed a beat and I soared in 
spirit with every bite of this pumpkin loaf.It smells amazing and tastes so divine it has been one of my favorite baking surprises.This moist and cakelike loaf with its nutty,chocolaty texture and a flavorfull undertone of pumpkin can be a wonderfull treat for your family to savor anytime of the day. Here is a recipe to be in heavan !!

Ingredients
  • 1.5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup red pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

  • 1/2 tsp salt
Procedure
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.Grease the loaf pan and keep aside. Sieve the dry ingredients, all purpose flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder together 3 times.
Beat egg and sugar together till it becomes foamy.Add olive oil,water and pumpkin puree and mix nicely.Combine with the above dry ingredients and mix nicely until all lumps dissappear.
